Color Grade with Confidence

Using our provided projects, you’ll jump right in and begin color grading a wide variety of footage . You’ll learn the best approaches for setting the tonal range and contrast for each shot using a combination of color wheels and curves. You’ll also learn how to create a shot matching strategy that will make your grading sessions more disciplined and ultimately more productive.

Optimize Your Grading Workflow

Helping you work more efficiently in Resolve is a big focus of this tutorial. For example, we’ll show you how to use Shared Nodes, so that you can link your grades to other clips so that changes to one affect them all.

Leverage the Power of Nodes

You’ll learn how nodes influence one another and the importance of controlling the image processing pipeline. Emphasis will be placed on how to manipulate nodes to achieve the best results and when to use separate image pipelines – specifically, Parallel Mixer and Layer Mixer Nodes.

Manage Your Grades

Color spaces can seem mysterious and intimidating. We demystify much of the technical jargon in this tutorial by showing you practical ways to understand and apply Resolve’s built-in color management so that the entire grading process can be simplified.

    Very good training. It’s much faster to learn advanced features from one good comprehensive tutorial rather than going through a lot of low-quality materials or trying to figure it out by yourself. I would like to see more advanced training from RippleTraining.

    Absolutely recommend this tutorial to novice as well as pro colorists, as there’s something new to learn for all. I personally feel that I’m a much more confident colorist after taking the course.

    The clear and concise way this very in-depth tutorial has been compiled has made the learning experience so enjoyable. I can’t imagine how much time and frustration it would have taken me to attempt to teach myself anything close to what’s covered here. This makes the entire programme, and all of Ripples tutorials for that fact, incredibly good value for money.

    Wow, what a wonderful adjunct to the basic tutorial. Having worked with DR for over a year now, this tutorial gave me very usable information right away, and it kept on coming! I am not a colorist but found the presentation very accessible and valuable. I really enjoy this instructor.

    I just purchased Advanced Color Grading in Davinci Resolve and it is absolutely great! It does not miss anything. Weeks ago I was saying that Ripple needed to come out with an advanced tutorial and they did. It is the most useful tutorial for my needs. Thanks. I hope you will offer a tutorial on Fusion and Fairlight soon.
